This section explains how to configure a freshly initialized instance of Makahiki to suit the characteristics of your IT infrastructure. It assumes you have completed the steps to install Makahiki either locally or globally following the instructions in Install Makahiki, that you initialized the instance using the “default” fixture, and that the server is now running.
In this section, all URLs will refer to a locally running instance of Makahiki (i.e. http://127.0.0.1:8000). Please substitute the host and port number of your instance when following the instructions below.
Site configuration differs from challenge design in that it requires “system administration” skills: you must understand IT infrastructure issues such as email transport, authentication, and so forth.
